Michael J. Fox isn't shy about posting images of his family to Instagram, but it's not all that often that the family is all together. On May 8, Michael and his wife Tracy Pollan were together again with their four children — Sam, 32, twins Aquinnah and Schuyler, 27, and Esmé, 20.

"Our children are beautiful, sensitive, intelligent, empathetic, independent, compassionate, adventurous, lovely people," the legendary actor penned, then joked to his wife, "That's your fault. We all love you so much. Happy Mother's Day."

Michael, Tracy and the kids try to get together as much as possible. Typically, Tracy will document the family reunions on Instagram, having done so in October 2021 when they got together for the 20th anniversary of the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

Prior to that, the Foxes hadn't been together (at least online) since summer 2021.

Michael and Tracy's kids have only really known the "Back To The Future" star during his battle with Parkinson's, as he was just 29 when he got his diagnosis.

"It was shocking when I was diagnosed. I was diagnosed completely out of the blue, unexpectedly," he told NPR in 2020. "I thought I had a sports injury, and I saw a neurologist at the recommendation of my physical therapist. And he very quickly and without much emotion pronounced I had Parkinson's and that I would – not to worry, I'd still be able to work for about 10 more years. And I was just – you said I was 29, so that was pretty shocking."

Michael's eldest son, though, never really focused on his dad's limitations.

"Growing up, it wasn't Dad who has Parkinson's disease. Dad was just Dad," he told the Michael J. Fox Foundation. 

Eva Mendes has steered clear of the big screen since 2014, but she hasn't ruled out a return to acting. 

The actress appeared on "The View" on Tuesday, May 10, and spoke about the prospect of ending her Hollywood hiatus. 

"I have such a short list of what I will do," Eva, 48, said. "Before kids, I mean, if it was a fun project — but now I won't do violence, I don't want to do sexuality; the list is short."

The mother-of-two's last film role came eight years ago in "The Lost River," which was written and directed by her husband, Ryan Gosling. If a special project comes around, Eva said she "hopes" to be considered. 

"I would like to [return to the movies,]" she said, but reiterated, "It has to be nice and clean."

A Disney project, she said, would be "perfect."

Not only did Eva take a break from Hollywood, but she also took a social media hiatus last year. 

"I started feeling really phony in it," she said. "I started seeing my day like, 'Is this a social media post? Is this a social media post?' I don't want to live like that."

Eva said she wanted to be more "genuine" on Instagram and not "seek" content. 

Jennifer Aydin's bling went bye bye at her birthday party over the weekend. 

The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star had a worrisome evening after realizing her massive diamond fell out of her ring from dancing at her 45th birthday celebration.

On Sunday, Jennifer posted a somewhat shocking photo to her Instagram Story in which her radiant-cut yellow stone was missing.

"On my way to the Venetian to look for my stone! Praying to St. Anthony," she wrote on Instagram, according to screen grabs. Not long after, the reality TV star posted a photo of the rock, which was apparently found on the floor.

"We found my diamond that fell out last night at my party! Came back to the Venetian this morning and it was on the floor- right smack in the middle of the dance floor!!!" she wrote on her Instagram Story.

According to Page Six, Jennifer's husband, Bill, gave her the ring in August 2020 in honor of the couple's 18th wedding anniversary.

After a "Housewives" fan site chronicled the missing diamond dilemma, Jennifer commented, "I prayed to St.Anthony! Thanks Be to God! It was a miracle."

Several fans assumed that Bill got the ring from Jennifer's brother, who is a jeweler. 

"Bill didn't get it from my brother- and it's never the jewelers fault- normal wear and tear, especially a ring on your finger ,where your hands bang everything, it's always a big possibility – and I was banging in those drums," she replied. 

After another person blamed Jennifer's brother, she called it "an ignorant comment."

James Cromwell is lending a hand to those protesting Starbucks over its vegan milk up-charges. 

On Tuesday, May 10, the Oscar-nominated actor superglued his hand to the counter of a New York City Starbucks to bring attention to the issue. He was joined by members of PETA who are also fighting the coffee giant for charging more for vegan milk, but giving dairy milk away as a courtesy.

With his right hand unable to move, the "Succession" actor read from a statement and called the milk issue "senseless" and done for "greed."

James, who donned a "Free The Animals" shirt, argued that non-dairy milk alternatives such as soy, oat and almond are better for the planet and animals. 

"Your understanding and support of this is essential," he said while sitting on the counter as supporters flanked him. 

Video of the incident shows Starbucks employees working and seemingly unfazed by the glue-in protest.

"My friends at PETA and I are calling on Starbucks to stop punishing kind and environmentally conscious customers for choosing plant milks," James said. "We all have a stake in the life-and-death matter of the climate catastrophe, and Starbucks should do its part by ending its vegan upcharge."

Many critics note that Starbucks doesn't charge for vegan milk in other countries.

About 16 minutes into the protest, police arrived. A police officer appeared to be flabbergasted after being told James and another man glued their hands to the counter. Most the supporters soon left the coffee shop upon police suggestion, but James and another man continued to be glued to the counter. The men eventually unglued themselves — while the store was temporarily closed — after being threatened with arrest. 

Starbucks' up-charging for vegan milk has caught the attention of others, as well. In March, Paul McCartney penned a letter to outgoing Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson asking for a change to the chain's policy on up-charging Americans for plant-based milks.

"My friends at PETA are campaigning for this to happen and I have agreed to support them with the quote: 'Sir Paul is asking Starbucks to end its surcharge on plant milks,' and I sincerely hope that for the future of the planet and animal welfare you are able to implement this policy," he wrote before signing off. 

"Superstore" star Lauren Ash is unapologetic about her dramatic slim down, despite the "vitriol" that's come her way.

The actress took to Instagram to post an updated snap that shows her significantly smaller than she was just a year ago. It seems the weight loss isn't being welcomed by everyone. 

A post shared by Lauren Ash (@laurenelizabethash)

"You know what's fun? When you're living in a larger body, people post that they're concerned for your health. Then, when you transition into a smaller body, people post that they're concerned for your health," she wrote. "Starting to feel like there's no winning as a woman. (Big shocker given this past week in America.)"

Apparently Lauren's social media has been bombarded with negativity since the weight loss. 

"To the people who have DMed me this week telling me I'm no longer a role model because I lost weight, I guess my question is, why was my body the only thing that gave me value as a role model?," she penned. "I've never once promoted weight loss, nor would I ever. I just happen to be in a body that's smaller right now than it was a year ago. And god willing, if I'm privileged enough to walk this earth for a long life, my body will expand and contract and change many times over."

The 39-year-old didn't detail how many pounds she's shed, but insisted there's no "secret" to her weight loss. 

"I removed stress from my life. That's it. It's amazing what our bodies hold onto when in a prolonged state of stress," she said. 

Lauren noted that she will post photos of her body in whatever form it's in.

"I'm more confident and happier than ever before in my life and I enjoy commemorating that with fashion posts and all that fun stuff. If you don't like it, and it's upsetting to you, please unfollow and no need to inform me that you did," she said. "I honestly never expected the vitriol I've experienced over the past week simply because I've lost weight."

"You have no ownership over my body. Nor do you over any person in the public eye. And honestly? Would you ever tell a man he was no longer a role model because he lost weight? Exactly. Thanks for coming to my TED Talk," she said, before adding, "Also, I look hot AF in this pic and am unashamed."

John Mayer stopped his concert mid-show over the weekend after a fan seemingly invited him to a hotel room. 

The pop star was on stage in Long Island on May 7 in the middle of his Sob Rock tour when he pointed out that someone made "a makeshift sign on their iPhone" that read "Room 2307." 

"That's all it said. That's all the information I was supplied with," he added, according to Page Six.

The Grammy winner then had a whimsical take on the situation.

"In the back of my mind I was thinking I'd have to go to every local hotel — I'd assume it would be a hotel — knocking on the door of 2307 until I found the person who had the sign '2307,'" he said. "I'd say, 'Can I come in?' and you'd say, 'I guess so.' And then I'd walk inside the room and I would sit on a surface, and you would probably sit on a surface not all that close to me because again, you didn't expect that this would happen."

He further hypothesized, "And then I would just sit there and I'd go, 'Can I get a water?' 'Oh yeah, let me get you one.' And then it would be silence for like two minutes, and then you would say, 'I really didn't think that you were gonna show up.'"

John laughed that he loved "the awkwardness of it." He also encouraged the crowd gathered in the UBS Arena to join him in "looking after the show."

Christina Haack and Tarek El Moussa's son was admitted to the hospital over the weekend, and he underwent emergency surgery.

Late on Sunday, May 8, Christina shared a snap of her 6-year-old son Brayden resting in a hospital bed after getting his appendix and a part of his small intestine removed.

"Scary 12 hours for us parents + step parents. After being admitted to the ER, Brayden had to have an emergency appendectomy as well as removal of Meckel's diverticulum early this morning. Nothing like seeing your child in excruciating pain," she said.

The "Flip or Flop" alum said Brayden is "in good spirits" and she relayed that the surgery went well.

"The entire staff at Mission Hospital was amazing and we are all grateful it was caught early," Christina continued. "Blessed to have 3 healthy + happy kids, caring family and friends and a husband who stands by my side. Happy Mother's Day everyone."

Christina's ex-husband Tarek also posted a photo of his recovering son. 

"It's been an interesting 24 hours. Last night we were at the CHOC Gala and this morning we were at CHOC hospital waiting for Brayden to get out of surgery," Tarek said. "He was extremely sick last night so Christina took him to the emergency room. It turns out it was the right call because he had to have his appendix removed and also we found out he has something rare called Meckel's diverticulum. Both issues were surgically removed and he's recovering overnight with his mom."

"He's such a strong boy and of course he told me he's very excited to eat real food tomorrow, he's obsessed with food just like his daddy❤️ very scary day, but we all banned together as a family to get through it," he continued. "Thank you to the amazing Doctors and nurses who took such incredible care of our boy."

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra had a Mother's Day weekend for the books — they were finally able to bring their baby daughter home after more than three months in the newborn intensive care unit.

On Mother's Day, the "Quantico" actress posted an Instagram photo holding Malti Marie to her chest as Nick looked adoringly at the newborn. It's the first time the couple has publicly shared a photo of their daughter.

"On this Mother's Day we can't help but reflect on these last few months and the rollercoaster we've been on, which we now know, so many people have also experienced," the could said in a  joint statement on social media on Sunday, May 8. "After 100 plus days in the NICU, our little girl is finally home."

Back in January, the couple announced they welcomed the little one via a surrogate, and the girl's name was revealed in April.

"Every family's journey is unique and requires a certain level of faith, and while ours was a challenging few months, what becomes abundantly clear, in retrospect, is how precious and perfect every moment is," the couple, who married in 2018, said. "We are overjoyed that our little girl is finally home, and just want to thank every Doctor, nurse and specialist at Rady Children's La Jolla and Cedar Sinai, Los Angeles, who were there selflessly every step of the way."

They added, "Our next chapter begins now, and our baby is truly a badass. Let's get it MM! Mommy and Daddy love you."

Priyanka did break from the joint statement to address mothers who "make it look so easy." She also recognized her husband, writing, "There is no one I'd rather do this with than you."

Kelly Clarkson is being forced to disable a collection of outdoor security cameras at her Montana ranch after her ex-husband, who still lives on the property, hinted that she's violating his privacy by having them on.

Court documents obtained by The Blast show that a judge is making the singer disable the cameras and show proof that she did so. 

"Kelly [Clarkson] shall forth with turn off all web-cams, trail cams, and any other security cameras at (the address) which are now approximately 13 in total," the judge's order states.

Brandon Blackstock, Kelly's ex, didn't specify why he wanted the cameras off, but sources told The Blast it was all about privacy. Although none of the cameras in question are located inside the home, Brandon doesn't like that Kelly has access to video and images of everything that occurrs on the grounds.

Kelly and Brandon's split has been nasty, to say the least, and the ranch — where Brandon has lived since June 2020 — was a real point of contention. A judge ruled last year that the "Since You've Been Gone" singer owns the property by herself, which Brandon disagreed with. In a March settlement, it was determined that Kelly will keep the ranch but Brandon could live there until June 1. However, he was forced to pay Kelly $12,500 a month for rent. 

The five-figure tab is a drop in the bucket for Brandon, as Kelly already gives him $115,000 per month in spousal support, which she is required to pay until January 2024. She also had to fork over a one-time, tax-free, payment of $1,326,161.

Kelly was recently granted primary custody of their two children — daughter River, 7, and son Remington, 5. Under the custody agreement, Brandon gets the children one weekend a month.
